"politicsnation" with reverend al sharpton starts now. good evening, al. >> good evening, ed. >>> and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the truth about the gop effort to kill obama care. it's not really about the health care website. it's about the entire law. today republican leaders made that clear. >> you know, the problem with obama care isn't just the website. it's the whole law. >> and the bottom line is the problems with obama care run deeper than just the website. >> hear that? this isn't about the website glitches. it's about scrapping the whole thing. never mind that 17 million children with pre-existing conditions are now covered. never mind that insurance premiums are 16% lower than expected. the gop wants all this to wither on the vine. and they're offering no alternatives of their own. and today democ
their families. meanwhile, these very same guys fighting against jobs programs wanting to give more tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires. it is totally obscene. >> but, you know, senator, the food stamp cuts that will hit tomorrow will slash about $5 billion from the program. now, that's less than the $6.9 billion we spent in fighter jet contracts just this year alone. and get this. it's a fighter jet program that the pentagon doesn't even want. why don't they cut it from there? >> oh, well, al, i guess the answer has something to do with poor people and working people do not make large campaign contributions. our military industrial contractors do. billionaires do. the fact of the matter is that not only are we going to look at a major cut in food stamps tomorrow as you well know, the republican bill -- farm bill passed in the house calls for another $40 billion in cuts over the next ten years. so these guys at a time when many of our kids are facing real challenges getting the food they need, the nutrition they need, these guys are going to war against the kids. they want more and mor

like head start and meals on wheels. and on the flip side, they want lower taxes for the rich, subsidies for all companies, and they want to gut wall street reform. these are some real weird priorities for people that claim they love america and love the american people. >> and don't forget to add in that they don't want people to have health care. >> that's near the top of the list. >> exactly. i do think it's sad. but it really does reflect an underlying philosophy. and that is the survival of the fittest. and so we don't want to put a hand out to help folks. if you can't make it, then you're out of luck. but when we're talking about food stamps just like you showed at the beginning of the segment is there's a lot of veterans on food stamps. are they saying that they're just sitting around waiting to have a government handout? i think it's a real double standard. and it's a very sad way that the republican party has developed. you know, in addition to cutting, they also want to add on crazy restrictions like you have to have drug testing and you have to work ignoring the fac
